How to Remove Someone From a Group Chat on Instagram?

Trying to find a particular option on Instagram is like stubbing your toe in the door, at night. It’s frustrating, annoying, painful, and unpleasant.

Fortunately, removing someone from a group chat is simple enough.

Do these to remove someone from an Instagram group chat:

  1. Tap on the airplane icon
  2. Select the group chat
  3. Tap on the group’s name
  4. Tap on the three-dot icon next to the member’s name
  5. Select “Remove user”

This won’t take more than 2-3 minutes, I promise. Just follow my instructions below and you’ll be done in no time!

1. Tap on the Airplane icon

Assuming you’ve opened Instagram already, you should land on your feed, where you’ll see posts from your friends and whatnot.

Focus on finding the airplane icon in the top-right corner. That’s where you’ll find your chats (including group chats).

Select it and see what I do next:

2. Select the group chat

Opening your “Chats” page will show you a list of all your, well, chats. Including the group chats you’re interested in.

Find it and select it, then keep following my instructions below:

3. Tap on the group’s name

Tap on the group’s name

Next, you should already be inside the group conversation, right? Then, look up to find the group’s name, and tap on it.

This will open up the chat settings where you can remove members 😀

4. Tap on the three-dot icon next to a member’s name

On the “Details” page (see the image above), you should see a list of all the members of the group. To remove them, simply tap the three-dot icon next to a member’s name.

Note – you’ll have to be a group admin to do this.

5. Select “Remove user”

Select “Remove user”
Select “Remove user”

Once you tap on the three-dot icon I mentioned previously, a menu will appear at the bottom of the page. One of the options here is “Remove user“.

Yep, this is the option you’re looking for. Select it, and that member will fly away from the group at Mach speed.

And we’re done here. Told you this was super easy! Leave a comment below if I there’s anything else I can help you with!

Do other group members receive a notification when you leave the group?

No, they don’t.

Instagram doesn’t notify the group chat when members leave.

Only when someone joins the chat will Instagram send a notification.

Even if you’re an admin of the group chat, you won’t be notified if someone leaves the chat.

However, a notification will appear on the group if you remove someone from the group chat.

Everyone will know that you removed someone from the group chat.

My name is Alex and I have a knack for social media in all its shapes and forms. I’ve dealt with such things for quite some time and I noticed that many people have issues with social media and technicalities.

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.

I'll present the facts as they are, and offer quick and easy solutions for them.
